Introducing West Texas
Tumbleweeds roll across dusty dry ground, cacti bloom in desert sands, endless skies contain blazing heat: West Texas is the stuff of Hollywood dreams. Drive along I-10 and there’s a whole lotta nothin’ to see. Go south or north and it’s a different story. Big Bend National Park – a moonscape of desert mountains and deep arroyos – is a river-running, mountain-hiking paradise. Outside the park, small-town surprises, like cutting-edge art installations and historic hotels, await. The state’s tallest peaks rise from Guadalupe Mountains National Park, to the north. And in the far west, El Paso is a town in a whole different time zone from the rest of Texas.
